We must find a cure and a cause for celebration are most likely rarely in the same sentence, but I believe there is a reason to join the two. Over the span of my life, my family has been personally affected by cancer more than once. Growing up, my mom had countless surgeries removing basal cell cancer from her face and is a true miracle and inspiration to me. My father is in remission (over 8 years) from prostate cancer and is not only a survivor, but a man who lives. My dad lives every day of his life to its fullest and he is a force to be reckoned with. Before my grandmother passed she got ovarian cancer, my aunt had ovarian cancer and my uncle has had numerous bouts with melanoma. I hate cancer. Fuck cancer. (I apologize for my language!) I am a huge supporter of cancer awareness, cancer prevention and cancer research. Any event I am asked to attend regarding cancer is a no-brainer for me. I am way behind on posting for this event, but importance of the V Foundation is one I have to share whether I am tardy or not. Not only was this a night of celebration for how far the foundation has come, but it was also a night of education for me. I have attached some information below on the V Foundation and whether you have interest in donating or not, if you are affected by cancer or one of your loved ones is, please take a look and see how they can help or provide you with information. Of course I support any and all donations anyone is willing to do for cancer, period. There’s just something incredibly special about the V Foundation. Please take a look! I mean, for starters…
“Not a Moment to Lose. Since our founding in 1993, the V Foundation has already contributed over $170 million to cancer research. While this amount is extraordinary, there is still so much work to be done.
Not a Moment to Lose is propelled by a true sense of urgency. We believe we must accelerate research if we want to achieve victory over cancer. We have momentum. There are more than 15.5 million cancer survivors today. Survival rates for many cancers continue to increase. New technology and a better understanding of genetics have allowed us to individualize therapies, leading to personalized treatments and more success.
Let’s build on this momentum. We must keep progressing. More funding means more research. More research means more lives saved. Join us in our campaign to raise $200 million by 2020 and donate today. There is truly Not a Moment to Lose.”
Please visit the V Foundation here for all information and donation opportunities.
Because this was a warm summer night cocktail party, I was able to put on a fun dress and leave Lennox at home with Daddy. I was able to toast to cancer awareness with my girlfriends and enjoy looking over the Hollywood hills. I have to say it was a nice bonus to an already amazing evening. My outfit details are below! Hee hee. A girls gotta share a fabulous dress, BUT mine is sold out… Ugh. But I’ve found similar ones and they’re on crazy sale too! You’re welcome!
